Acne scars and large pores are rather commonplace. Both can create a lack of self-confidence and make life miserable for sufferers. But there is help!
Studies have shown that about 95 per cent of all people who have acne also have some scarring. So, the sooner you get treatment for those scars, the better outcome you’ll have!
Both shallow and deep acne scars have been successfully treated using the fractionated laser, which also improves skin texture by shrinking large pores. It can actually reduce acne scars by up to 80 per cent. The laser pokes tiny holes into the skin allowing collagen to re-grow. In fact, fractional laser resurfacing has become the gold standard for laser acne scar removal.
The laser gets its name from the fact that just a fraction of the skin is directly treated. Skin that’s not treated activates natural healing while treated areas encourage new collagen production resulting in more healthy skin. Fractional laser therapy isn’t like other laser resurfacing. The top layer of skin isn’t at all “wounded.” So, the healing time is a lot shorter. You’ll just look like you’ve had a sunburn for a couple days.
The fractionated laser is a good choice for all skin types. But you may need a complementary treatment to go with it. Dr. Jain and the team at Fairview Laser Clinic will develop a clinical skin care program that’s right for you. That may be laser alone or in combination with non-laser options.
Here’s some info that’s good to know:
Laser resurfacing can make pores appear smaller with a lasting effect. Even though these procedures are really more designed to reduce acne scarring, they do wonders for enlarged pores.
Additional treatment benefits
Each treatment targets 20 to 25 per cent of the skin’s surface. The number of treatments is between three to 10 sessions depending on your skin and the severity of the condition. Recovery takes about three to seven days.
